Asker Ocagi Cad. 34367 Sisli Istanbul
The traditional flagship of Divan Group’s collection of fine hotels, Divan Istanbul offers travel connoisseurs a unique interpretation of luxury design and Ottoman hospitality. Carrying the signature of renowned Architect Thierry Despont, acclaimed worldwide for his bold re-imagining of public spaces, such as the Getty Center in Manhattan, and private ones, such as the home of Bill Gates, Divan Istanbul brings the same innovative style and state of the art luxury to the heart of this ancient and exotic city. Featuring elegantly appointed guestrooms and the warm, attentive service combining the best of East and West that is the hallmark of Divan Hotels, the completely rebuilt Divan Istanbul has an over fifty-year heritage yet is also one of Istanbul’s newest hotels.
Location is just as important as design, and Divan Istanbul’s prime location in the heart of the city on a leafy boulevard leading to Taksim Square means all the unforgettable historical and cultural sites that define Istanbul, as well as its most important businesses and commercial addresses, are within minutes of the hotel. Adding comfort to convenience, the hotel features the luxury Puri Spa and the choice of three gourmet restaurants: Divan Lokanta, Divan Pub and Maromi. Spaces designed for formal and informal gatherings meet the needs of business as well as leisure travellers: spacious meeting rooms, two foyers, the sleek Divan Bar and Divan Patisserie, featuring a sidewalk café are great spots to cut a deal, hold a meeting, or just relax and enjoy the ambiance over a fine Turkish pastry or an expertly mixed cocktail. Despont and his long-time collaborator, master glassblower Robert DuGrenier, whose dramatic hand-blown chandeliers adorn the lobby, have captured a singular vision that blends opulence and refinement throughout the 191-room Divan Istanbul in a provocative homage to the best of historic Istanbul. Divan Istanbul is where luxury accommodations, bold design, and innovative cuisine meet in a uniquely refined setting.
Divan Istanbul is located in the heart of Istanbul, close to Taksim Square. A short walk along broad, tree-lined boulevards is all that separates you from the best culture, nightlife and entertainment that Istanbul has to offer. Major corporate headquarters and shopping centres, as well as the Congress Valley’s Lutfi Kirdar Convention and Exhibition Center, Istanbul Congress Center and Cemal Reşit Rey Concert Hall are just minutes away by foot. The Istanbul metro is only a brief walk from the hotel, and Ataturk International airport is 15.5 miles or 25 kilometres and only 30 min away by cab. Whether closing a deal or opening your eyes to the splendours of Istanbul--or both--Divan Istanbul holds the key to a fulfilling and relaxing stay.
Divan Lokanta is an Istanbul attraction in its own right and proudly upholds Divan’s decades-long tradition of fine dining featuring Mediterranean cuisine with a Turkish touch. The copper-leaf bar and glass sculptures shimmering golden red set the tone in an inviting and elegant atmosphere where countless vintage wines tower in illuminated racks over the barstaff expertly mixing fine cocktails, and the professional and friendly waitstaff stands ready to delight you with palette-dazzling Mediterranean and Turkish gourmet cuisine. Master Chef Aydın Demir deftly spans the gap between yesterday’s and tomorrow’s cuisines, creating an innovative and surprising menu together with Divan Group’s Executive Chef Giancarlo Gottardo by combining the best of Mediterranean and Turkish cuisine with exclusive Divan signature dishes. Guests are invited to enjoy the very best in fine dining whether over a leisurely or business lunch or dinner, a special occasion or just a delicious tête-à-tête dinner for two in this elegant and refined setting.
